Three schoolchildren who went missing from the school in the Kabusa area of Abuja have been found.

The FCT Police Commissioner, Sunday Babaji stated this in a news briefing on Monday.

He said that the parents made a complaint at the Kabusa police station about the missing children, which prompted a distress call to all locations to search for the children.

“After the receipt of the complaint, we made an entry of missing persons. We deployed all our intelligence assets and informed all our neighbouring states through our signal, describing the children. We worked with all the community leaders, vigilantes and hunters.

“We also searched the bushes; the school authorities were also invited to the police station for questioning over negligence.

“Yesterday (Sunday) around 8.30pm, our tactical men on a stop-and-search patrol at Wuye division, which is the Games Village area, saw the three children distressed.

“They rescued them, took them to the station and handed them over to a female police officer, who questioned them. The DPO was aware of the missing children at Kabusa, so he quickly contacted a fellow DPO there; he rushed down and it was discovered that they were the ones.

He said the children were found roaming the streets in the Wuye district of the nation’s capital.
